Good choice for solo meal?
Will be in town staying at Paris and would like a nice dinner alone on first evening before company arrives. I'm considering L'Atelier, Sage and American Fish.
If doing L'Atelier would ordering 3-4 small plates suffice for dinner. I looked at menu and doing that would run about $125 vs $159 for their Seasonal Discovery Menu.
If anyone has input please add. And am open to other suggestions walking dist to hotel that is good for solo diner
Hi - I have eaten at American Fish a few times and it is always excellent so I would definitely recommend it. Enjoy your trip!
Every restaurant in LV is solo friendly. Sage is very good. I had dined only at L'Atelier in NYC, but have dined twice solo at Joel Robuchon at the Mansion (the more formal restaurant), and it was excellent the first time, and very good the second time; both times the service was wonderful.
When I'm alone, I prefer dining at a bar...seems less lonely in that it's easier to strike up conversation with other diners and/or the bartender. I've had terrific meals at the bar at Sage, Bouchon, The Country Club (Wynn), and L'Atelier (a counter, rather than a true bar).
I've done L'Atelier and Joel Robuchon (no longer called "at the Mansion, just Joel Robuchon) solo and both are perfectly designed for solo dining. Sage and American Fish are also lovely and I've dined solo at each.
There are no wrong answers, but "suffice" is relative - 3-4 small plates at L'Atelier is not a lot of food 'size-wise.'
